Course Overview

This online homeschool Marine Biology course is rigorous and will provide your student with a thorough understanding of marine biology. We recommend it as a high school course, as it requires knowledge of general biology and assumes your student has previously participated in biological lab activities such as experiments, dissections, and microscopy.

All Apologia courses are written directly to the student, so even complex topics are accessible and easy to understand.

Topics covered in this course include the following:

  • The Process of Life
  • Geography of the Oceans
  • Reproduction in the Sea
  • Classifying Life in the Sea
  • Kingdom Protista: The Unicellular Algae
  • Kingdom Protista: The Marine Protozoans
  • Kingdom Protista: The Multicellular Algae
  • Kingdom Monera

Engaging Video Lessons

Each section of the textbook features engaging videos to help your student better absorb the information presented in the text. Marine Biologist Sherri Seligson uses visual animations and on-location video clips to explain more complicated concepts in a three-dimensional, interactive way.

We’ve also included video demonstrations of all the experiments so your student can easily set up experiments at home.

Hands-on Experiments

Throughout this homeschool course, your student will connect video lesson instruction with hands-on experiments for maximum learning. Experiments utilize easy-to-obtain household items.

Automatically Graded Tests

The tests for the self-paced version of this course have been exclusively designed with automatic grading. After completing a test, students receive immediate results and explanations for all answers so they can re-review concepts as needed. They may repeat the test a second time to ensure they’ve understood all the material. The higher score of the two attempts will be recorded as the test grade.

Recommended Course Materials

Student Notebook

The Student Notebook for Exploring Creation with Marine Biology, 2nd Edition, is highly recommended and is sold separately.

Purchase Student Notebook

Apologia Student Notebooks are specifically designed to help students work independently and take responsibility for their studies.

The Student Notebook contains the following:

  • Notetaking pages
  • Instruction in the Cornell notetaking system
  • Space to answer all study questions found in the textbook
  • Lab report forms for each experiment in the text

Notetaking helps students retain information, review for tests, and produce a record of their thoughts as they connect the concepts presented in the textbook with their own ideas. Taking good notes can make the difference between mastering a concept and not quite understanding it.

Additionally, our Student Notebooks help students keep a carefully organized, detailed, and complete lab notebook. Using the included lab report forms, students can record the information they gather during experiments and master the process of writing a formal lab report.
